Memo: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – H1N1

TO: State Association Executive Directors 

FROM: Robert F. Kanaby, NFHS Executive Director 

SUBJECT: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – H1N1 

DATE: October 22, 2009 

A flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against influenza infections. Currently there are TWO flu vaccines available. These include the seasonal flu vaccine and a 2009 H1N1 vaccine to protect against the 2009 H1N1 flu virus (sometimes called “swine flu”). Both of these vaccines are safe, effective and important to have administered, especially among high-risk populations. 

Each day brings the possibility of new developments regarding the 2009 H1N1 flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wants to direct our partners to information that can be readily forwarded and shared with team members, colleagues, family and friends. Our goal is to help you disseminate current and developing flu information as quickly as possible.  

For information about the 2009 H1N1 vaccines, please visit H1N1 Flu Vaccination Resources. For information about seasonal influenza vaccines, visit Preventing Seasonal Flu with Vaccination.  

CDC has made it easier to answer your questions about the signs and symptoms of H1N1 flu by providing free H1N1 resources in the form of ready-made, multi-language brochures, flyers, podcasts and more.  

We encourage you to share some of the materials available for distribution and use by CDC’s partners. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Thank you.
